    Getting more modern arn’t we Mike!. Drove one of these as a 6-wheeler with the Bedford engine. Was completely gutless. The Detroit engine was the best option. – Ted

  • Tis a bit modern for me and about as late as I want to get, by ’76 I had left lorry driving and my first hand knowledge of this type of vehicle is nil. I am happier with the older stuff i must say, but these TMs, Ford Transcons and Marathons do have a following among the younger enthusiasts and rightly so.

    Love this! It bring back so many memories of going with my dad, He use to drive one for Merton Lock Haulage in Nottingham, where he did regular runs to Europe in the late 1970’s early 80’s.

    Excellent as are all your paintings. Love the red shine in the water on ther road and I especially love the wheels on the trasport truck. So perfect.
